How it works
Wandering Aramean Travel Tools Cash Back Shopping Program
Wandr.me ("WATT") offers a service that allows members to earn cash back on purchases made at over 1,500 stores. Joining and using WATT is free and simple, requiring only your email address and a password to get started. WATT does not sell or rent your personal information to third parties, and WATT does not 'spam' its members. WATT does not install or require you to install software on your computer. In other words, there is no 'catch'. WATT receives a fee for referring buyers to affiliated stores and uses that fee to pay members cash back on their purchases.
Please read this complete member agreement ("Agreement") for full details on the WATT Cash Back Shopping Program ("Program"). We think you will agree that WATT offers the smartest way to shop for travel online.
Becoming a Member
By enrolling as a member in the Program ("Member"), or by utilizing any of WATT's shopping applications ("Applications"), you agree to be bound by this Agreement. Enrollment as a Member is simple: you must provide an email address so WATT can inform you when money or other rewards are credited to your account. Members must be at least eighteen years old and agree not to use the Program for any illegal or fraudulent activity. Please be aware that participation in the Program and the opportunity to earn cash back are offered at the sole discretion of WATT, and WATT has the right to change this Agreement in whole or in part, at any time, with or without notice.
Earning Cash Back
Earning back a portion of your purchases as cash back ("Cash Back") is straightforward. Choose a store, product, coupon or other offer displayed on Wandr.me or a WATT application, click the accompanying shopping link to be directed to an affiliated store's website ("Affiliate Store"), and complete a purchase to earn Cash Back on your net purchase amount. Specific Cash Back amounts vary by store and product category and are provided in detail at Wandr.me. Please note that the net purchase amount excludes taxes, fees, shipping, gift-wrapping, discounts or credits, returns or cancellations, and extended warranties.
Certain Affiliate Stores exclude a limited number of products and purchases from the Program. Additionally, to earn Cash Back, you must complete your purchase during the same shopping session you start after clicking on the WATT link. If you visit other sites before completing your purchase or use coupons not provided by WATT, your purchase might be associated with a service other than WATT and you might not earn cash back on your purchase. If you disable 'cookies' on your computer you will not be able to earn Cash Back as cookies are used to authenticate the user and be certain Cash Back is assigned to the Member account.
Earning Bonuses & Other Rewards
WATT periodically offers monetary bonuses or other rewards for sign-up in the Program, for referring other new Members, or for other specific actions. The terms and conditions accompanying such offers will govern how they are earned and paid if the terms and conditions differ from this Agreement. To qualify for a sign-up bonus payment, a new Member must establish an Active Account (defined below) and make minimum qualifying purchases totaling at least twenty-five dollars ($25.00) within ninety (90) days of becoming a Member. To qualify for a referral bonus, a Member must refer a new Member who establishes his or her own Active Account and makes his or her own minimum qualifying purchases totaling at least twenty-five dollars ($25.00) within the first ninety (90) days of becoming a Member. Please note that sign-up and referral bonuses are given for the purpose of attracting brand new Members to WATT. An individual person is only eligible for one sign-up bonus and may earn only one referral bonus per individual person referred.
To receive payment of accrued Cash Back and any other rewards, you must establish and maintain an active account with WATT ("Active Account") with the information necessary to process your payment: a valid email address at which you are able to receive email, a valid postal address at which you are able to receive mail, your first and last name, and a password to protect your account. To maintain your Active Account, you must update your information if it changes and have shopped via Wandr.me or an WATT Application or have accrued Cash Back at any time within the last twelve (12) months.
WATT pays its members accrued Cash Back and other rewards every 3 months, at a minimum. WATT pays members in U.S. dollars via check, Paypal, and sometimes other payment options. Members may select or change their payment options in the My WATT section of Wandr.me. Each payment represents Cash Back and other rewards earned and accrued during the prior quarter based on the schedule below. The minimum payment amount is $5.01. Balances below $5.01 remain in your account for potential payment during the next payment period.

Please note that orders from a few Affiliate Stores may be delayed by one pay cycle due to delayed processing and reporting by the stores. We do our best to expedite payments and to maintain a list of stores whose practices might delay our ability to pay Cash Back on your purchase. WATT reserves the right to delay payment for any purchase based on changes to Affiliate Store policies and procedures at any time.
Updating & Maintaining Your Account
You must be logged into WATT and enter your password to change your account information and payment preferences. You may check your account status and recent earning history at any time via the My WATT tab on the WATT Website. For security purposes, it is recommended that you memorize your password and not write it down. You are responsible for keeping your password and other account information confidential. WATT is entitled to act on instructions received under your password and is not responsible for any credits or debits made to your account by someone else who uses your password.
Receiving Communications from WATT
By signing up for membership at WATT, you agree to receive communications that are account and membership related (e.g., that we've added money to your account or that we are mailing you a check on a certain date, etc.). We do not send any other emails so there is nothing to opt out of. Since we need to communicate account information with you in order to operate our service, you cannot unsubscribe from account information emails. But rest assured that we don't send account emails unnecessarily. If you do not wish ever to hear from WATT, even if just to hear that we awarded you Cash Back, you can close your account by contacting WATT's customer service department.
Protecting Your Information
WATT does not sell or rent your information to third parties. WATT requires your name and address in order to send you payment of Cash Back and other rewards earned through WATT. Any other information gathered by WATT will be used only to improve your WATT experience, for example by minimizing the irrelevant content or offers you see and increasing the offers you see from your favorite stores. Such information might include your favorite stores, preferred types of coupons or shopping categories. WATT does not disclose your information to third parties except as necessary (i) for WATT's agents and service providers to make WATT's payments to you; (ii) to comply with government agency or court orders or requests; (iii) in providing aggregated or non-personalized marketing services for advertising or store partners; or (iv) for WATT's agents and service providers to send WATT's communications to you.
Inactive Member Accounts & Termination of Membership
Membership in the WATT program is free: there is no charge to be a Member or to earn and receive Cash Back. If your account is inactive for more than twelve (12) consecutive months, WATT reserves the right to debit your WATT account balance two dollars ($2.00) per month to recover the cost of account maintenance until (i) you reactivate your account by starting a shopping session via Wandr.me or WATT's Applications, completing a qualifying purchase, or updating your account information (providing a valid name, email and mailing address), or (ii) your account balance is zero. If the balance in your inactive account is or becomes zero, WATT will close the account permanently and cease to maintain your account records and Program access. The inactive account maintenance charge will not cause your account balance to become negative and will not cause you to owe money to WATT.

The determination of whether or not a purchase made through an WATT Affiliate Store qualifies for Cash Back is at the sole discretion of WATT.
